Best barbecue in Boulder. Rooftop ding is always a delight. Great food and attentive service
Great view and great food!
Super friendly staff! Food & beverage were excellent. We’ll be back!
Thank you very much.
Thank you !!!!
Burnt ends were the bomb! Cool vibes. Definitely will be back.
Thank you Rob. We are glad you enjoyed.
Food was very good. Had Brussels sprouts, burnt ends ( or something like that) they were so good. Brisket for dinner, also very good.
Thank you Laura. We are so glad you enjoyed.
The falafel salad, lemonade, burnt ends and even the kids meal were so delicious. Great beer variety. Awesome spot for a casual lunch. Service was wonderful too.
Thank you for the nice review.
Food was excellent. Great selection of BBQ options - delicious!! Drink and whiskey selections were wonderful. We enjoyed happy hour and then dinner.
Thank you, we are glad you enjoyed the BBQ. Hope to see you soon.
Terrible service, very average food. How do you mess up fish and chips?
Casual tavern, probably a great place to meet for a beer. Staff is terrific. But food a bit disappointing...had the brisket, not a great cut (fatty) and less flavorful/smoky than one might expect.
We were seated outside when it began to pour down rain. We enjoyed the experience so much that we, along with other outdoor diners, continued to sit in the rain to finish our meal. The staff is attentive, the views are incredible, and the food is consistently delicious. We have been coming to West End for years, and look forward to many more.
Menu lacks variety even for a bar. Food was lackluster.
Good food, nice servers :)
We go to West End about every 5 years, thinking it will be great to sit outside in a relaxed environment. And each time the food disappoints and we don’t go back for a while. This time, the service lacked attention and we had to fight for anyone to help. Finally getting to order, the appetizers took 30 minutes to arrive, then dinner quickly after, all stacked up on the small table. We weren’t in a hurry, but at least do a better job of evening out the delivery.
Half the shrimp were just mush, probably well past expiration. Special pork belly was just old dry jerky. Ribs were super salty and dried up. Someone got excited with the rub. Young waiter was trying, but he was clearly a rookie.
But the view was great. And they had reservations available on open table. So we’ll try again in 5 years. Maybe.
Rooftop dining in Boulder, on Pearl Street. Excellent service from Pierson. Good salads. Very large portions, so the value is noteworthy. The BBQ is good, but my half slab was difficult to eat even with a steak knife. The meat was very tasty and the sauce was the right balance of tangy, spicy, and not too sweet. But the meat was not falling off the bone and much of it was coated with thick fat. I think the pulled pork, chicken, and sausage were better than the ribs. Pierson made me a tasty but low alcohol Sangria. Red wine was very warm and undrinkable. Good beer choices for IPA fans.
Our female server was nice but she took forever to come back to the table. We sat near the bar so we instead talked to the male bartender who was awesome. We both had barbecue and the food was amazing.
I had 3 KC natives at the table and they were even impressed with the burnt ends! Overall it was a fantastic meal with great drinks, attentive service, and a nice, relaxed atmosphere.
Maria, Thank you we are so glad you had a nice visit! Hope you come back. All the best! Ashley
Always eat at the WET on my first night in Boulder when visiting. This time brought the family.
Thank you Steven! We appreciate your positive review and all of your support!
Awful food, service, loud music blaring in our ears from the speaker near our table, waited 45 minutes for drinks, insulting and incompetent waiter. Would never recommend on any level. Physically ill the next day from the food. Avoid at all costs.
Burgers are always great and three out of four us had them. I ordered the Dino Rob BBQ WOW! It was amazing and delicious.
Great place to gather for food and drink with friends and relatives. Very enjoyable!
Thank you Dave!
Requested rooftop and they gave us a great table, thank you!
Great scotch menu! And great smoked chicken
Thank you Steve.
We had a nice table in the roof. Bar service was spotty. My drink came out about 10 minutes after my friend’s. The server needs to learn more about the extensive liquor menu. Every answer to every question was, it’s good or I really like that one.
The mushroom Swiss burger was nothing to write home about. My friend enjoyed his fish sandwich quite a bit. French fries weren’t hot.
My best friend is in town, I just recently moved here, and we wanted some good food. This was my second time eating out since the virus has slowed down. Service was great and the margs were good. I got the burnt ends and Mac and cheese. The burnt ends were wonderful. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Mac and cheese but the burnt ends made me happy and warm inside. My friend got the fish and chips. She enjoyed it. We sat by the bar, they had sports on. The atmosphere was welcoming but it was quite loud due to the popularity of the place. Our waitress was nice and the bartender did a good job making our drinks. Highly recommend if you like barbecue or want some good fish and chips. I will definitely be going there again.
Thank you very much for the great review. We really appreciate the feedback and will share with the staff. Hope to see you soon,
Sam was an awesome server!! Food was great too!
We love the food, drinks and especially the service at the West End! The food is absolutely phenomenal! Ao delicious. Their smoked chicken melts in your moth , their ribs are THE BEST ever! Even better thsn those you get in Austin, TX! Smoked sausage and corn bread. Great beer, whisky and cocktail selection! Yummy!!! Their service is spectacular! Kind, attentive and skilled staff! 👏👏
Thank you for the awesome review. We are so thrilled you enjoyed the ribs. We will share this review with the crew. All the best.
Good food though the fries were fried Im the same oil as the fish so it was a weird taste. It took our waiter forever to get our order and I had to call him over.
We had the chopped salad (added smoked chicken), cheesesteaks, and cornbread. All of it was great and I would highly recommend! We also had some fun cocktails. We ate out on their rooftop, which was perfect as it was a beautiful day. The inside also looked great.
Friendly staff. Great food. Brisket was delicious and drinks were cold.
The food is great and the rooftop is bomb. The service was slow.
Had lunch here with my parents and we had a great time! Food was also really enjoyable! Would come back again.
Awesome we are so glad you had a good time. Hope you do visit us again.
Always great food !
Thank you Lisa!
Finally, we have a fantastic neighborhood restaurant in Boulder that is open and seating a ton of happy people who enjoy delicious food. I recommend the F'n Marg and Philly Cheese Steak.
Thank you BEN!!! We are so glad to be here for Boulder and cultivate good times.
Excellent place for bbq and beers and whisky. Loved it and had a great waiter!
Thank you Pablo!
Wait staff friendly but absent.
Wonderful...great restaurant and wonderful to hang out. Our food was delicious.
Thank you Janey! We are glad you had a nice time.
Service was slow and server didn’t give us the specials of the day; which we would have ordered. (Heard her telling another table)
Service was amazing! Good overall bbq...I’ll be coming back.
Thank you for the nice review.
We had a lovely experience on the rooftop at West End. Great food and service, and a fun, relaxed and welcoming vibe. The food was excellent, and there is a nice choice for all tastes. Would highly recommend it.
Thank you for the nice feedback, we appreciate the support. All the best.
